Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill's 'League of extraordinary Gentlemen'series are dense with sometimes obscure literary references.This is a page-by-page de-ciphering of TLOEG volume two,with a couple of lenghty interviews thrown in for good measure.Hundreds of books are referenced here,that would never have come to my attention otherwise.

I have gone through this book with paper and pen noting down anything that looks interesting.So far I have bought and enjoyed 'The Land under England' by Joseph O'Neill,The Wierdstone of Brisgamen by Alan Garner,The Coming Race by Edward Bulwer-Lytton ,Doctor Syn by Russell Thorndyke,The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym by Edgar Allan Poe and many others.

If you love your books and enjoy rooting them out,this is a key to a world of fantastic fiction that I would never have found on my own.Cheers Jess Nevins.

I would get Jess's companion to the first League book first. If you like that, this is more of the same.

OK, you don't NEED to see under the covers of everything that is hidden in the League series, but it adds a lot of explanation (some of it spurious) to read what Jess Nevins has collected together.

The second half contains interesting interview materials.
